ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation composed of representatives from various national, standard-setting organizations. Since 1947, the organization promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial, and commercial standards. It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, and works in 164 countries.
ISO 3834-3:2005 defines standard quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials both in workshops and at field installation sites.
The Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) applies to the design, manufacture and conformity assessment of pressure equipment and assemblies with a maximum allowable pressure greater than 0.5 bar gauge including vessels, piping, safety accessories and pressure accessories.
The PED provides a legal structure whereby pressure equipment can be manufactured and sold throughout the European Union without having to go through a local approval regime in every member state.
ASME stands for “American Society of Mechanical Engineers”, a non-profit organization with the goal of “helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods”. ASME is one of the leading international standards and code developers for the mechanical engineering industry
The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) is a universally-acknowledged set of standards developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. It regulates the design, manufacture, installation, inspection and care of boilers, nuclear components, and other pressure vessels.
VLAREM stands for “Vlaams Reglement betreffende de Milieuvergunning” (“Flemish Regulations on Environmental Permitting”).
It is a set of standards that aim to prevent environmental pollution and manage safety hazards of businesses. It targets activities considered harmful to the environment - such as waste storage, the production of chemicals, noise pollution, combustion processes, etc.
VLAREM II contains, among other things, general terms and conditions for private companies regarding the storage of dangerous substances in tanks.
